at this new ad they're using. >> the stuff some folks are saying about president obama sounds kind of familiar. the same people said my ideas would destroy jobs and they called me every name in the book. well, we created 22 million new jobs and turned deficits into surpluses. president obama has got it right. we should invest in middle class education. and pay down our debt and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. sound familiar? >> it's so true that in 1993, when president clinton was passing his first budget, that everybody republican speech says this will kill jobs and the economy. >> exactly. and i think it fits with the closing argument here which is barack obama is steady. the people you trust in the economy like bill clinton are steady and the plan is steady. in manile ways it's the same plan that democrats have used and has worked before. one of the funniest thing from romney land, he was holding it up in people's camp there's nothing new in here, because in romney world, 14 days out of an election, you should be bringing up brand new ideas or proposals because that's what they do.

. >> as some of you know i went to school here in new york. i had a wonderful experience here. >> i used to love walking through central park loved to go to old yankee stadium the house that ruth build. although he really did not build that. i hope everybody is aware of that. >> text book example. a sense of humor is when you can make jokes about yourself. you need a sense of humor for that. >> that line is out of his campaign speech. and he turns it on himself to great effect i thought. >> chris matthews was not the only huge tv star who was mentioned by president obama. he was very proud to announce and endorsement he got from another tv star. let's hear that. >> and we are getting to that time when folks are making up their minds. just the other day honey boo boo endorsed me. so that was a big relief. ultimately though tonight is not about the disagreements governor romney and i may have. it is what we have in common beginning with our unusual names. actually mitt is his middle name. i wish i could use my middle name. >> i thought that was one of his great lines. >> could romney ever

're whining about the use of this talking point because i think what people took away from the debate were two things. that the president didn't do very well and big bird. those were the two big take aways. it was a long, technical, boring debate. it was the only line that really stood out and frankly it makes sense to use as an emblem of how mitt romney will not give any reasonable specifics about his plan. if you are giving a $5 trillion tax cut, how are you going to pay for it? and the only two things he could name in that debate were repealing obama care and cutting funding for pbs and big bird. >> he was on cnn tonight and he was asked about the specifics of the tax cuts, so i'm sure he must have -- let's just see. >> well, i'm not going to layout a piece of legislation here because i intend to work together with republicans and democrats in congress. >> oh, okay. so, he's prepared to layout half a piece of legislation which is i will cut all tax rates by 20%. there's another half of the legislation which i must not speak of. >> right. >> then why mention that other half? why mention the

and that's jobs and the opportunity to help with themselves. >> stick with this guy. he will move us forward. >> i'm barack obama and i approved this message. >> here's what the star of the highest rated daytime show among young women had to say about mitt romney today. >> governor romney was supposed to be on with us this thursday with ann romney, we were looking forward to it. over the weekend, his people said that he had scheduling problems and would not be come on with us, nor at this point did he feel that he could reschedule. >> mitt romney actually explained months ago why he's afraid of going on "the view." >> "the view" is high risk because five women on it only one is conservative four are sharp tongued and not conservative. >> this weekend paul ryan made a desperate attempt to show how much he cares for 47%. but it was a little too desperate. he dropped by an ohio soup kitchen for a photo op. the president of the charity told "the washington post" today. we are apolitical because the funding is from donations. it is strictly in our bylaws not to do it. the photo op they di

, to not get annoyed at the lack of searsneriousness an lack of actual facts. so i think most of us at this point are expecting, romney can have a mediocre performance and i think he will get good spin the next day. >> steve, the romney campaign is up against another difficulty in the poll which is the public's actual expectation at this point. the "washington post" poll shows that among likely voters, 55% of them expect president obama to win the debate. 31% expect mitt romney to win the debate. and presumably that expectation will color the way those viewers watch that debate. >> yeah. it could. i mean, maybe this is the one risk maybe the biggest risk for the obama campaign that if the bar is set that high, if there's sort of an even match, if romney kind of holds his own, isn't clearly blown out of the water or anything like that, that people say he exceeded expectations. so what looked like a draw ends up being interpreted by the viewers or the media, or if the media is looking to sell the horse race angles, maybe they start portraying the draw as a romney win. the expectations
